Ensuring Parent Voice is Recognized and Heard

Recognized by government and education partners, BCCPAC is the collective voice of parents/guardians of over 570,000 children on educational issues within the public system. We strive to foster a culture of acceptance, diversity and inclusion in our public schools and advocate both for systemic changes and individual parent advocacy. 

We represent the parent voice on provincial committees dealing with a wide range of issues, including student assessment, Indigenous education, curriculum, and school safety. Governed by a volunteer board of nine directors elected annually by the membership which consists of District Parent Advisory Councils (DPAC), Parent Advisory Councils (PAC), and parent associate members representing diverse communities including rural, remote and urban schools. BCCPAC represents all parents in the public education system in BC.

Be part of the collective voice recognized by government and education stakeholders who involve BCCPAC as the provincial voice of parents.
